Linux has evolved to become a robust operating system capable of running mission-critical servers. Many organizations today use Linux to run customer-facing applications as well as workforce applications. Consequently, the performance of these Linux servers is vital to organization and data centers that use them. To ensure that Linux servers perform correctly, Linux server monitoring is implemented to track the health of these servers.
Linux server monitoring allows any performance problems to be discovered and remedied when servers undergo varying usage loads. When Linux server monitoring is coupled with application monitoring such as .NET application performance monitoring, performance issues caused by application code and architecture can also be discovered and fixed. Server and application performance monitoring allow both operating system and applications to be tuned for availability and efficiency.
Linux performance monitoring enables any server-level performance problems to be discovered and diagnosed. Problems like slow response times and server software and hardware failures are reduced or eliminated. Performance improvements also increase the efficiency, stability, and availability of Linux servers allowing them to meet the stringent requirements of modern SLAs.
In addition to Linux server monitoring, Linux servers running Java and .NET applications also benefit from Java and .NET performance monitoring. Applications that have high user loads have to perform at an elevated level. This increases resource demands on the servers running the applications. To ensure that these applications run efficiently and perform adequately, .NET and Java application monitoring tools can be deployed to gather performance metrics for application performance analysis and tuning, and Linux server monitoring can be used to monitor system resources used by applications at runtime. .NET and .NET and Java performance tuning tools can be used in tandem with Linux server monitoring to ensure that applications and infrastructure work together to deliver best-possible performance for end users.
Dynatrace is a market-leading provider of performance monitoring solutions. We offer a comprehensive suite of solutions and tools for application monitoring, data center monitoring, user experience management, and load testing.
Dynatrace Application Monitoring is a .NET, PHP, and Java monitoring tool that captures application transaction details like method execution times for root-cause analysis of performance problems, while also providing underlying infrastructure stack visibility. While supporting sophisticated Linux server monitoring for host and guest operating systems, Dynatrace Application Monitoring also extends far beyond server-centric monitoring to provide real-time actionable insight into end-to-end application delivery as it extends across the data center, the cloud, third-party services, and user devices.
